Yes, not Kimmel...Fallon.

God help this poor guy, he easily has the worst late-night show around.

Mind you he only has 5 shows in so far, but I saw a couple and well...they're just awful.

Now guys, let's remember that when Conan started as a late night host, he wasn't the best one as well. Infact, he was very unpopular.

It takes some time for someone to get the hang of it and become an awesome late night host.

Never heard of Seinfeld, what kind of music do they play? Assuming they use Kramers, it must be heavy!

Is it just me or is Kimmel always lit out of his mind, I can never see his eyes.

Well as long as he's coming back it's all good. I was worried for a moment!

I so his opening stand up and it was ****ing awful.

I haven't seen any other american 'late' shows so it might compare favourably or badly, but it was dire.

Yall are giving him a hard time. Conan sucked for like the first 5 years that he hosted Late Night.

this guy knows what he's talking about.

i'll give him a year before i put him up there with carson daly. although, i do like how he got the roots on there.

I doubt it'll ever be as funny as Conan, but I enjoyed him on SNL (which I realize is something I probably shouldn't be saying on these forums), so I plan on watching it at some point.

So far the show bombs. He's really nervous when he is on stage. I guess he needs some time to lose the stage fright.

Im also really disappointing by the lack of interaction between at least one of the band members and Fallon. Again, this might be because they don't really know each other yet and it might get better.

i kinda see some potential.
he seems soo much more funny when the guests come on, so it's just gonna take some time to get his monologue down.
and maybe avoid the SNL like skits with that big tv.. if he continues with that, it might be the end of him..

Max Weinberg is moving to the Tonight Show with Conan, isn't he? What's the new Late Night band like?

I actually wanted to check it out. I know the first few episodes 'll be bad, he doesn't have his footing, etc., but I think he could potentially surprise us. Someday...

I hope so. He was a huge part of Conan's show.

Thank God Max and the MW7 are staying with Conan. I always hated Jay Leno's guitarist--I was REALLY hoping they didn't try to stick him with Conan or something.

Oh my god... i just saw the first episode... fail my friends.

A lame monologue, a stupid game where audience members licked things (...)... and thats it. Oh please, Jimmy just die.


When Conan starts doing the tonight show?

The show itself is just bad. The set is terrible (color scheme makes it look really small), the band gives him NOTHING to work with comedy-wise, whereas other hosts either make fun of their bands (conan) or chat with them (leno/letterman), and the writers aren't giving him anything funny to work with. Conan's the kind of guy who would just scrap everything in that situation and do something outside the box to be funny. Fallon, on the other hand, doesn't have that comedy gene. He's just an actor who's done work in comedy.

Indeed. I was so used to Conan, but this isnt an excuse to fallon. The jokes were bad, he doesn't have that "talk host" posture, and the segments were just stupid.
Its the first episode i see and i think i lost interest pretty quickly. I dont know whats more to come.

same here. he wasn't that great on SNL.

the only late night shows i watch are Letterman and Craig Ferguson.

Ferguson is nothing short of hilarious

From all i watched, heres how it goes:

To make sure Late Night with Jimmy Fallon works: (or make your own)

1) make bad jokes that no one laughs, on the monologue
2) try to do more bad jokes after the bad jokes, so the audience doesn't react again
3) make sure theres an applause sign
4) Make sure, you (the host) laugh on every joke you say, even if they arent funny
5) do the most terrible sketches ever
6) Show how bad you are acting
7) Always, ALWAYS bring famous guests to your show, so it doesn't suck more them it does
